1232 Tasting Notes

I opened my cupboard to find this tea because spelling is not my friend. I was amused to discover that Detox from DavidsTea is my most-drank tea, and since I tend to only drink it after a night of too much booze, that just says a whole lot about my life, doesn’t it XD.

Anyway, I coldbrewed this overnight in an effort to both use this up and have something different. The leaves were a bit of a disappointment as I strained them out. Usually oolongs unfurl beautifully, but these were just brown wilted leaves. Sadness.

I’m not a straight tea drinker, so I couldn’t tell you about any of the nuances of the tea, but I will say it is light and refreshing in a way a black tea could never be, but for me it is nothing special.

Surprisingly, my wife likes this cold and sweetened! Shock! This is a sipdown, but we’re both a little sad to see it go.

I love Kanpe too – was sad when it was discontinued…

Cold brewed overnight, and this is lovely. Floral, but not overly so, with notes of peach. This is a delight cold and so very refreshing. I love it and it’s the perfect thing to help me drift off to sleep.

How did you prep it? I have a full tin of this (a gift) and have tried making it so many different ways (including cold brewing), and it’s awful to me every time.

Nothing special, really. I just put it in cold water and let it steep until I’m ready to drink it.

Huh. I thought I didn’t like this tea, but looking back at my rating, apparently I did like it. Ah well, it’s been sitting in our cupboard for way too long. I cold steeped it today and again for tomorrow to use up the last of the tin.

it is hibiscus, which is why I thought I didn’t like it, but iced, the cinnamon wins out and it’s a tart treat. The lemon works in wonderfully and it’s just a yummy cup.

Posting a tasting note on behalf of my brother, who I sent a package of RiverTeas to for his birthday. This tea is apparently “crazy good”! Now I need to try it XD

IT IS TOTALLY CRAZY GOOD! Apologies for the caps; but this blend makes me excited.

One of my cold brews for the day in an effort to use it up. It’s a sweet ice-winey flavor, I’m always impressed at the flavor of this one. I love ice wine, but I also love having money and I can’t do both XD. This is always a nice alternative.

Bumping the rating down for this one because cold, this tea was awful. It was incredibly vegetal and maybe a hint of peach flavor, but the aftertaste was just terrible. I’ll either finish the rest of the bag hot or give it away.

Cold brewed this for me and the wifey overnight.

I am not a lemon fan, especially in tea, as it tends to taste like lemon pledge, which this definitely does. Ugh, with the woody rooibos, it’s like licking a freshly pledge’d coffeetable.

drank Superstar by RiverTea

I cold brewed this overnight, eager for a cold, grapefruity delight. It smells so good. So good.

And it is good and there is a hint of grapefruit, but the honeybush takes over. It’s not bad, it’s just different. I think I’ll drink the rest of this hot, because it is gorgeous hot.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
